Q. How is fog light different from an ordinary light?
A. Fog light is yellow in colour. Because of this its wavelength is more than ordinary light. As has been proved by the prism and vibgyor experiment, yellow colour deviates the least after red and orange. Since the latter two stand for danger signal, yellow is the next best option to be used in fog lights so that it is visible from a great distance in fog.
